‘Un­der­cover af­fairs’ from Scot­land Yard

SCOT­LAND YARD has set­tled le­gal claims from seven fe­male ac­tivists who said un­der­cover po­lice had formed “in­ti­mate sex­ual re­la­tion­ships” with them while in­ves­ti­gat­ing protest move­ments.

As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Martin Hewitt said “some of­fi­cers, act­ing un­der­cover while seek­ing to in­fil­trate protest groups, en­tered into long-term in­ti­mate sex­ual re­la­tion­ships with women which were abu­sive, de­ceit­ful, ma­nip­u­la­tive and wrong.”
